Have your essay be workshopped by the team behind the best-selling Young Blood books from the Philippine Daily Inquirer! Be part of the Young Blood Workshop at the Philippine Readers and Writers Festival 2019 on August 3, Saturday, at 10 a.m. at Ballroom 2 at Raffles Makati. There’s no age limit for participants. Young Blood book editors Ruel S. De Vera and Pam Pastor will apply the book’s unique and demanding criteria of accessibility, honesty and artistry to pre-submitted first-person, nonfiction essays. Listen to their thoughts on your work! Participants will submit their two-page essays prior to the workshop proper. This time, we bring Young Blood to you.
Interested participants should e-mail their working first-person nonfiction essay drafts (maximum of 400 words or 2,000 characters with spaces) to firstname.lastname@example.org “Festival Workshop” in the subject line. At the end of your entry, please include your complete name, address and contacts details. Only submissions meeting all these requirements will be accepted. Deadline for submission is July 29. Only the first twenty (20) essays submitted will be discussed
